But He said, “On the contrary, blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it.”
The greatest happiness is to hear the word of God and obey it. Whatever God says, even though it may seem illogical or we don’t like it will always be the best and nothing better for us than follow His instructions to the letter. The Word of God will never fail.
The words God speaks are the finest treasure to be found. God always tells the truth and His Word is true. When we receive any word from God, take into account their infinite value. We read in Psalm 12: 6: The words of the Lord are pure words; as silver tried in a furnace on the earth, refined seven times.
God created the heavens and the earth, everything that exists is His work, and made it through His Word. Therefore, we should know the immense power emanating from the words God says, which guarantees that all He has promised will fulfill according to His perfect timing.
But more important than the fulfillment of God’s promises is totally respect His statutes, ordinances, commandments and comply to the letter all instructions. When Jesus calls blessed is the man who hears and keeps God’s Word reminds us that none of His laws is arbitrary. Love and kindness of our Heavenly Father are limitless and He absolutely would not order anything that harms us.
Therefore, let us ears to hear the Holy Word of God and never we doubt obey and respect all the time. If we do so, we will benefit as God told Joshua himself: This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.
Never hesitate to obey literally the Word of God for all He has said is designed to benefit us. Certainly, the things he says to stop making us could get in serious trouble if we do. For example, within 10 Commandments some are also crimes in human laws, including not killing. If we disobey that command, not only will sin against God, but we will go to jail for murder and, in the worst case in some countries and under certain circumstances, we may be sentenced to death.
Also in the Word of God there are certain ordinances on what to eat and what not to eat. Many will say that it was only for the people of Israel under the old covenant; but we are now under grace and that is canceled. But human science itself has found that eliminating certain foods like the Bible indicating no eating is good for health. Let us never doubt in keeping with joy the Word of God. Blessings.
